I am always curious to know what people would do if they had all the money in the world. I recently heard broadcast on Good Morning America, how Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, etc, and now even the creator of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, is giving the majority of their riches away. 
In that regard, I have decided to open up 2011, here at TheOldFolksKnowBest.com, with a loud bang and give two lucky SUBSCRIBERS $100.00 to help start their year off a little better. Here at TheOldFolksKnowBest.com, we are all about charity and educating people on how important senior citizens are to our lives.

  31. My grandma is in her late 80s and loves reading but doesn't get to the library often or bookstores. She is taking computer classes now and saw an eReader the other day she said she would like if she could ever afford one. I tried saving for one for Christmas but was a little short so if I won, I would put the $100 with what I have and get the eReader for her. Reading brings her joy and she passed that joy to me so giving her a tool where she can download books to read would be perfect!

  59. I know exactly what I would do with the $100. On Christmas day, my husband and I took Christmas dinner to an extended family of 8..Grandma, Grandpa, Daughter,son-in-law and 4 children. (various people in our little church made food dishes for us to take and the church had also collected canned goods for their pantry). When we got there, we found out that the family had so many needs including help with rent and utilities, fixing a bicycle-their only means of transportation-, infant formula, helping the father get a job...and encouragement for the grandparents...The $100 would go to help towards these things along with some other church members giving what they can.
